Ascent Trip Report

We followed Greg Slayden's route and directions including his Variation Couloir on the way down. The road to the trailhead is closed 1 mile back from the trailhead. We brought ice axe and crampons, however we only used them on a short section of snow which can be avoided in rock. In reality, you could probably even cross the snow without crampons and ice axe as the snow section is very short
